Honcho has partnered with Lifesure as motorhome insurance comes to the InsurTech platform for the first time.
Lifesure is the first specialist motorhome insurance provider to join Honcho’s innovative apps after the UK saw soaring motorhome and campervan sales this summer.
Lifesure’s motorhome cover products are backed by some of the biggest names in insurance including AXA, Ageas and LV=.
“We’re really excited to bring Lifesure’s motorhome insurance to the Honcho Partner Marketplace across our apps,” said Frank Speight, co-founder and chief commercial officer of Durham-based disrupter Honcho.
“Drivers across the UK are rediscovering the UK as a primary holiday destination and the campervan and motorhome market is booming. Lifesure share our focus on delivering a great service to their customers, and we’re delighted that our customers can now insure their campervans and motorhomes with one of the leading providers in the market.”
Nick Long, head of insurance at Lifesure, added: “We’ve seen the number of online motorhome enquiries rocket over the past 14 months, and we knew that Honcho was keen to expand their ‘wheels’ product marketplace.
“We’ve admired Honcho’s electronic trading platform for some time and are delighted to have forged a great relationship with them. Whilst our process isn’t a reverse auction in the traditional Honcho style, we’re pleased to have created something that is a stepping stone to new and exciting developments.
“We’ve created an agile solution to allow Honcho customers to access our panel of motorhome insurers and it’s testament to our knowledge, experience and can-do attitude that Honcho have chosen to partner with Lifesure.”
Lifesure motorhome insurance is available now within the Honcho apps for iOS and Android, plus via the Honcho webapp at gethoncho.com.
